Amazon Announce Spurs Will Be Latest Club To Get 'All Or Nothing' Documentary
Tottenham Hotspurs will join Manchester City in having an Amazon 'All or Nothing' documentary series show how their season unfolds, with the release date coming late next year.
The All or Nothing series has already featured City as well as New Zealand's rugby union team and NFL sides Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers.
In an announcement on Friday, Spurs were named as the latest team to let the cameras in behind the scenes of their 2019/20 season. In a statement Amazon Director of European Originals, Georgina Brown, said, "All or Nothing has become a franchise defined by true quality and unprecedented access, and that will be no different with this series. We can't wait for Prime members worldwide to again experience the highs and lows of a world-class team in the greatest football league on earth."
Fans weren't exactly thrilled by the news:

Spurs Head of Business Development, Aidan Mullally, said, "This is an exciting time to be a part of our football club and we are delighted that Amazon will be there to follow us every step of the way throughout the season.
"We are looking forward to bringing our supporters and viewers around the world closer to the Club than ever before and sharing our story through Amazon's world-class platform as we embark on our first full season at our new stadium in our home of Tottenham."
Fans of Mauricio Pochettino's side might bemoan the timing of the series. Last season the club reached the Champions League final for the first time, thanks to a remarkable comeback against Ajax in the semi final and a dramatic win against Manchester City in the quarters, and they'd have loved to have watched behind the scenes footage of their European run.
Things this season aren't looking anywhere near as rosey and the north London side have won just three games from their first eight in the Premier League and have just one point from two games in the Champions League, after a hammering from Bayern Munich.
As well as the 'All or Nothing' series, Amazon have also produced behind the scenes documentaries on Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund, as well as La Liga, Steven Gerrard, Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos.
Spurs will appear on Amazon Video before the end of next season as their league game against Manchester United on December 4th and Boxing Day game against Brighton will both be shown live on the platform.
